Simple Router Circle Jig

03-28-2020 01:43 AM by Axis39 | 0 comments »

Simple might still be overstating things… I needed to make a circular hole in a speaker baffle at a hair over 9”. I love using templates with my routers… But, I needed to make an accurate template. I hate taking the screws out of my router bottom plates… I’m always losing the screws! So, I contemplated. Made a few starts. Then, was suddenly hit with inspiration! I have a little battery operated Ridgid Trim Router that I use for soooo many thing...

Cabinet Table Saw

01-24-2020 04:16 PM by thecrus8r | 11 comments »

Greetings, I am in the market for a new table saw, specifically a table saw with a large enough surface space to safely push larger pieces of lumber through. From what I have come across on my own would be some form of a cabinet table saw. Would anyone have some affordable NEW, not used, recommendations that are south of $2k? Projects include, but not limited to, the following: - eat-in benches- pull out trash/recycle bins- simple cabinets- box frames- floating shelves- table tops/en...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #17: Gents Saw Upgrade

01-19-2020 01:34 AM by Bill Berklich | 3 comments »

After seeing the Youtube video on this I really wanted to try it out myself. So I started with a Two Cherries Gents Saw that’s been laying around collecting dust. I pulled the handle – and reused it as a file handle. Then cut/trim the plate. I used a Blackburn Tools handle pattern and pasted it on a 4/4 slab of Marblewood and cut the basic shape on the bandsaw. Lots of work with rasps, files, and sandpaper brought the hand to shape the came the critical cut. The sli...

Grizzly 18” bandsaw parts??

07-07-2019 03:02 PM by Marshall1 | 2 comments »

Have the opportunity to buy a 18” 1988 vintage, 2hp band saw but needs blade guide. I can not fine the model number on the machine but the motor appears original and is dated 1988. Anyone know if the blade guide would be available from a aftermarket supplier?

If anyone has any info on this Plane, please help

03-30-2019 04:28 PM by Bigmikeyg | 8 comments »

Hi guys and gals, I just recently acquired this beautiful wooden plane but there are no markings anywhere on the wood, brass, or blade. I am planning on sharpening it up and using it but first I would like a little info on it and possibly its value. That won’t change the fact that I will be using it, but I may be a little, shall we say, less aggressive, with it if it’s valuable… I love the dovetailed brass on the bottom. Please see pictures.

The Box-From-A-Block Jig

02-04-2019 07:16 AM by Matt Snyder | 6 comments »

This is a jig I made that allows me to make a small box from any size block of wood (within reason). The appropriately sized frame pieces mount to the walnut sliders and the whole jig mounts to my router table. I was able to route out 13 blocks in less than 20 minutes. I decided to use the live edge slab from chainsaw milling the walnut I used for the sliders. That scrap slab had some cool spalting in it. Here’s a YouTube video of the build. I hope you enjo...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #10: Marking Tool Swap Fall 2018

11-10-2018 12:41 AM by Bill Berklich | 9 comments »

Still not focusing on the Tool Cabinet, I joined the LJ Fall Swap. My first one and let me tell you the guys in the swap are expert. Knowing the everyone has most of the standard marking tools I looked around the shop and my eyes landed on a set of pinch sticks. Just poplar stained with Dychem (for metalworking) and coated with Wattco. The sliders are just 3/4” square steel tube drilled and tapped. But a great starting point because I figured that most people don’t have/use...

Tool Gloat: Brass Purfling Channel Cutter

10-18-2018 10:18 AM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

This is essentially a specialized cutting gauge that is used to cut a thin channel in the edge of a violin so that laminated purfling can be inserted. There are several types of these available, but I wanted this one made of brass. Even though I’m not even close to creating a violin, at least I have a tool to help spur me along on my journey. The tool above the cutter is a thin specialized chisel used to dig out the material after the cutter digs the path. This gives...
